Just relaying what I was told.
Note: I understand Davey Tree also used Imprelis on properties.
Star, again thanks for the information.

I'll wait for my offer and then have the tree company that listed, come out.

I guess I can ask the tree company but if any LCO wants to answer, great. We skipped spring last year and jumped into summer with 100 temps. Does that mean we have to wait till fall to plant trees?
